How do you set and deactivate the alarm function.

Hi, I bought a National Geographic Globetrotter watch at auction with out a manual.I can't figure out how to set and deactivate the alarm function.It's a 5130.D swiss quarts movement,it has three sub dials,the one above the six o'clock positionhas two hands and can be set.The bottom function pusher advances the hands and when you stop it beeps twice in about two seconds if you push it again it beeps once.If you leave the hands of the sub dial at a time and you make it beep once or twice the alarm still won't sound.I know the alarm works because it went off at 9'o'clock but I had both hands at midnight. Please help if you can.THANK YOU! Ryan

GO TO BULAVA look for Chronograph 561/598 will show diagram along with these instructions
FEATURES
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
seconds display.
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
hand rapidly.
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note:
The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

How to set time on my National Geographic Dakota Atomic Watch?

For the national geographic radio controled watch.
The easiest way to rest this watch is to remove the battery.
Once replaced the watch will flash set to 12. Push and hold the upper button till the hands spin. Press this button again to stop the hands. Tapping the upper button will make the hands move forword 1 sec. Set all the hands to 12. becareful, if you pass 12 you will have to go around again. to start the hands spinning again press and hold the upper button untill the hands move. Once all the hands are at 12, press the lower button and the screen should flas LON for london. Set the city code using the upper button to your area. press the lower button hard to confirm the information. The watch should set itself to the correct time. If it starts running from 12, place it on the window sill for the night so that it can get a signal.

Activate T Buton gose to Alarm function.

As with many watch manufacture houses novadays watch technology differs from house to house. Tissot is no difference as T-series watches was developed by Tissot itself.
You have to follow the steps one by one as instructed in your watch manual. Probably you will need reset your watch completely, depending what actions you've allready done.
In case if you lost your watch manual, go to www.tissot.ch and find out everything you need.
